Juan Miguel P.

Cancun, QROO, Mexico

Hello, Welcome to Cancún & Riviera Maya!! My name is Miguel Pasos and I enjoy meeting new people and finding ways to help you have an unforgettable experience.

People find me to be an upbeat, self-motivated with excellent communication skills. For the past 19 years I have worked in the tourism industry. I enjoy reading, and the knowledge and perspective that my reading gives me has strengthened my guiding skills and abilities. I'm a very flexible with people and this has helped me in a bussiness where there are many different personalities looking for different activities.

I started as a tour advisor and sales representative at different travel agencies, worked for 11 years and then decided that it was the time to try something different.

My passion for my culture, The Mayan Culture combined with my love for archaeology and teaching are the main reasons that made me decide to take this "job". Nowadays I work as a tour conductor and guide in Cancun and the Riviera Maya. My goal is to create experiences that last for the entire life and do my best so that, the people who spend a day with me might learn something that has an impact on their life.

I specialized in the organization of private excursions and activities in Cancun, Riviera Maya and other attractions of the Yucatan Peninsula, from Mayan ceremonial centers, cenotes and theme parks to colonial cities and authentic Mayan communities.

I have made a selection of the best experiences that you can have in Cancun and the Riviera Maya, this together with the best offer, much more authentic and that will make your stay in Mexico safe, easier and more fun.

I will explain in simple common language the significant features of the area in an entertaining way. "A lot of people won't take a tour because the last time they did, they were one of 50 people, and the tour guide was talking at them. " For this reason I keep groups small — from 1 to 6 people- to make the tours personal and let people ask questions and tell their interests.

Currently I can guide at Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, Ek Balam & Uxmal.

Looking forward to meeting you in Cancun!

A Recent Review of this guide

Miguel was wonderful! He was on time, very knowledgeable and kept things interesting. He thoroughly explained what to look for on the tour and even gave us background info on the area and local customs. The swim in the Cenote was beautiful! And lunch eating a buffet of local foods was to die for! Would totally recommend this tour over a bus tour... they were just arriving in the heat as we were leaving.
